Rezzone and Spectators:

􀀁Kyral Threndor , Absolution (19, 72, 21) – Moderate

Mustertime and Skippers Meeting: KTYC Startline: 12:30 pm SLT
NOTE: 12:30 pm SLT = 21:30 CET and 20:30 UK Time.

Race starts at 01 pm SLT (22:00 CET and 21:00 UK)

There will be 1 race with 3 laps and always course KTYC-Jess (see map and USB nc) with several winds directions (SE, NW, N and S) and first 21knots. The race will probably last between 27 and 35 min, depending on your skills or day form.

It is a relaxed fun and fair race. A great opportunity to learn how to race the windsurfer Sea Boss Rider. If you dont have one yourself, but are interested to try it, we have a group rezzer at the beach opposite of the lighthouse to use it.

Spectators are always welcome to watch and they will see the racers several times because of our 3 lap race.

  • Practice is allowed at any day. Remember: Practice makes perfect! Just get the race maps and USB notecards from the race center at KTYC
  • Map: 􀀂

**** Auto-pilot or auto sail trimming usage during a race will result in a DSQ.

    Good to hear from you again. Even better to see you so active in helping to get a windsurf race established. And that in times when windsurfing in RL is as good as dead and everybody’s kitesurfing now. I remember back in 08 or 09 SWB tried to push a windsurfer into the SL sailing, and particularly the racing scene. It was a shortlived attempt and never caught on. 😦

    I guess I know why: Americans want big fat ass ships, no dinghies and especially no teenie tiny surfboards. 😮

    Anyhoo, wishing you and Bianca all the best.

  2. I’m totally confused now. Do multiple people post on this account or am I simply on a different blog, Orca? And the tag line:
    Piss off everyone in the neigborhood and get a massive erection!
    Sounds like it’s right up my alley. 😉

    • Tee hee, most of the headlines aren’t by me but just stuff I find on the interwebz. Often quotes by shitheads like Einstein, Lincoln, Ghandi, Guevara and various Second Life toons, YouTubers and other bloggers. Your humble little editrix would neverever come up with offensive shit like that by herself. Mhm. 😉
      Oh, and yes, there are theoretically multiple co-bloggers posting on Thar She Blows! I mean it’s 99.9% me but usually Lucy posts her TrYC Saturday race results once a week, and Sunny also blogs about sailing, but not very often. And even less Trappy gives out good advice about Linux and computers and shows photos she made with one of her fancy Fujifilm cameras.
      The name of the particular Author shows up above the post title, where the date is.
      Theoretically Sammie and Kittensusie are also staff bloggers but they are too fukn lazy and haven’t posted anything yet. Quite a shame, Kitten’s LCC Sunday cruises would be even better with some photos and a report, published on Monday.
      And Macz, who wanted to post reports and results of the races in his own yacht club but only did it once or twice. Last time I looked the club was gone.
      And then there is was also Maiti Yenni, but she won’t post anymore since she’s RL dead. :/
